    Its wierd on several occassions MP servers for several games (also published by EA) continued to work on 360 while they were shut down on PS3 side. Crysis 2 was one such example.

    Here however it seems completely the opposite and not only that but that the servers have had issues on 360 side since beginning of 2021. Such a shame but what can you do, I just wonder why DLC got delisted and servers stopped working so early on 360 side...oh guess these things are always gonna remain mystery

    I messaged this guy for help this morning with regards to relisiting all the NFS DLC as it is all still available on the PS Store. This is totally unfair that it has been delisted from the Xbox marketplace. Rumours are that it is Microsoft and not EA that has removed it from their Xbox Marketplace store. So maybe a complaint to Microsoft would be a good thing to do too.

    I'm more annoyed at them delisting all the games.. could've easily put them on for sale in March, April, May if they knew they were going to pull them

    Just tested NFS: Carbon to see if I can get my Dummy into any matches or lobbies on it's own. Nothing. No joy : (

    I’m all for the DLC being relisted but what about the servers that are already not working? Seems that should be fixed first.
    The problem here is, technically they do work, you're just unable to play any games in Online/match up with anyone. Very convenient for EA.

    According to a chat a had with Mohit on EA Support, this is a response I got back after asking if the content would be put back in the store, since it’s still available in the PlayStation store. I specifically asked if the Italian Pack for The Run would be added back, then changed my question to all the content that was delisted today, so I guess this is good news?

    “I request you to wait for some time now as the respective expansion pack will be available on the XBOX store.”
    “Yes, I meant that only, please wait for some time as our team is working to re-list the content.”
    Have you given up? I think I have given up all hope of the DLC coming back.

    How do you contact them to request them to relist it?

    I for my part contacted EA, in order to inform them of this situation and by asking for the extension of the closure of the servers, and if they can also make a fix for the successes of shift 2, since the online doesn't work for most of you! and for a patch concerning carbon and the run which would deserve to have again their success restored + correct online

    I'm not sure if the need for speed Windows phone titles are also on the chopping block, so I knocked those out. They have online flags, but the games are for all intents and purposes offline play. No idea if they need some sort of server connection to register unlocks. Clearly there is no word about them because EA probably forgot they exist, but it wouldn't surprise me if mobile undercover got swept up in it. They may be okay, but it's something to keep in mind if anyone still has them in the backlog.

    That is the same method I have been attempting. I keep trying every so often, but no luck! You have at least given me hope!

    has anyone heard from the status of the NFS servers?
    if before the 31/08, they do nothing, can consider as definitively ruined!

    I wouldn't put too much faith in that. His account is a but suspicious.

    Looks like TA already labeled Shift 2 & The Run achievements as unobtainable. Sad, unfortunate & kinda horseshit!!!
